The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has exerted a profound impact on patients with end-stage renal disease relying on kidney dialysis to sustain their lives. Motivated by a request by the U.S. Centers for Medicare &Medicaid Services, our analysis of their postdischarge hospital readmissions and deaths in 2020 revealed that the COVID-19 effect has varied significantly with postdischarge time and time since the onset of the pandemic. However, the complex dynamics of the COVID-19…

Modeling Time-Varying Effects With Large-Scale Survival Data: An Efficient Quasi-Newton Approach

A novel application of quasi-Newton iteration method to model time-varying effects in survival analysis and it is shown that the algorithm converges superlinearly and is computationally efficient for large-scale datasets.

Scalable proximal methods for cause-specific hazard modeling with time-varying coefficients

A proximal Newton algorithm with a shared-memory parallelization scheme and tests of significance and nonproportionality for the time-varying effects is proposed that reduces the time and memory costs by orders of magnitude and enjoys improved estimation accuracy compared with alternative approaches.

Stratified Cox models with time‐varying effects for national kidney transplant patients: A new blockwise steepest ascent method

This work proposes a blockwise steepest ascent procedure by leveraging the block structure of parameters inherent from the basis expansions for each coefficient function and applies the method to analyze the national kidney transplant data and detect the time‐varying nature of the effects of various risk factors.

Outcome‐dependent sampling in cluster‐correlated data settings with application to hospital profiling

Results highlight that the framework proposed provides a means of mitigating disparities in terms of which hospitals are indicated as being poor performers, relative to a naive analysis that fails to adjust for missing case mix variables.

Martingale-based residuals for survival models

SUMMARY Graphical methods based on the analysis of residuals are considered for the setting of the highly-used Cox (1972) regression model and for the Andersen-Gill (1982) generalization of that

Kernel Estimation of Bivariate Time-varying Coefficient Model for Longitudinal Data with Terminal Event

We propose a nonparametric bivariate time-varying coefficient model for longitudinal measurements with the occurrence of a terminal event that is subject to right censoring. The time-varying

Time-dependent effects of fixed covariates in Cox regression.

A nonparametric modification is proposed for Cox's proportional hazards model (Cox, 1972, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B 34, 187-220), where the covariates are fixed, but their

Estimation for the bivariate quantile varying coefficient model with application to diffusion tensor imaging data analysis.

This work proposes a varying coefficient quantile regression model able to handle bivariate functional responses and supports innovative insights into biomedical data by modeling the joint distribution of functional variables over their domains and across clinical covariates.

Model Selection for Cox Models with Time‐Varying Coefficients

This work proposes an adaptive group lasso method that not only selects important variables but also selects between time-independent and time-varying specifications of their presence in the model.

Flexible Methods for Analyzing Survival Data Using Splines, with Applications to Breast Cancer Prognosis

In an analysis of a large data set taken from clinical trials conducted by the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, these methods are seen to give useful insight into how prognosis varies as a function of continuous covariates, and also into how covariate effects change with follow-up time.
